What to Expect When you go to Rehab
Ayahuasca use by itself is unlikely to preempt entry into a rehab program; however, underlying substance abuse or mental health issues, in conjunction with ayahuasca use, could lead to dependency or addiction issues that are best addressed with the help of professionals. The first step in any rehab program is an initial evaluation done with a licensed medical professional. The goal of the evaluation is to identify the degree of addiction and the most appropriate course of action to achieve the best outcome for the client.
Clients who need high levels of care or supervision will have the best results if they start in residential rehab followed by an intensive outpatient program that is gradually relaxed while the client establishes new, healthy routines and develops strategies to avoid triggers.
